Due to its location situated within a Strategic Development Corridor IDA/Apple acquired a 198ha forested site at Derrydonnell property, Athenry, Galway for the development of a Data centre. The site was selected because of its strategic location to energy sources, ease of access and location to Galway and other large urban areas offering a skilled workforce. As part of the project Apple agreed to the development of a new forest walk for recreational users and also to develop a new outdoor class room for Lisheenkyle School.
This is the largest single investment by a multi-national company in the West of Ireland. When complete the centre will employ 150 people.
